You know that Craighead County is nominally dry. Alcoholic beverages may not be sold for "profit." Nonetheless the proliferation of private clubs
continues apace, with ABC approval yesterday of the Brickhouse permit
in downtown Jonesboro
. Our tipster says it will go, as it happens, in a building once occupied by a church youth group that was the reason for denial of an earlier downtown club permit. Brickhouse joins Piero's, Sheffield's and Julio's as oases for alcohol downtown.
